leave a comment »

Developed mainly for salmon and trout, fly fishing is a special angling method whose origins are lost in the mist of time. Initially, real flies and worms were used as baits, bur as time passed and plastic and rubber were invented, artificial flies replaced the real ones. The rods were made from wood at first, but are now made from polycarbonate and glass fiber. The artificial fly is very light, however the line is heavy, helping the bait sink.

Especially if you like to catch fish as I do, while standing in the middle of a flowing river.A good pair of polarized sunglasses cuts through the …
